    I went here on a brunch double-date on an early weekend in October, second seating (1PM). Completely lucked out on the weather -- it was a beautiful day, which certainly was a plus. Beautiful panoramic views of Boston, quite a brunch spread, wonderful service. Only thing of note: champagne is one glass, not bottomless. (This was a misunderstanding from when I read the website, but no big deal.) Overall, lovely.

    This was a very impressive brunch buffet but I have to say I was a little disappointed in the service. It was not bad service but it wasn't great either. I was also disappointed to see that they had absolutely no dress code. Maybe I'm old school but when you are paying that kind of money for brunch you don't expect to see people walking around in gym shorts.

    It was for Father's Day since the dad in the group likes buffet brunches. The food was decent, the space itself was old looking and thrown together. The service was spotty. We were offered a Mimosa for an extra cost and coffee, but not juice. We had to call the server over when we needed something although the plates were cleared fairly quickly. When we arrived at 1PM it was empty, but did fill up. The food was good, but I don't appreciate a gratuity of 15.5% being added to my bill. There were only 4 of us. I thought a gratuity was added when it was a larger party. I always leave a tip, even at a buffet but I don't appreciate being told what to tip, especially for the spotty service we received.

    Dined here June 8, 2014. Ambience and view are wonderful, food is less so. Sushi and shrimp cocktail are pretty much stock offerings in any upscale brunch, but given that the price of the Taj's brunch is at the higher end of the spectrum, I was expecting far better quality. Neither the shrimp nor tuna sashimi tasted fresh. (Turner Fisheries, RIP, served the best shrimp cocktail in my opinion, and almost any pan-Asian restaurant serves better sushi than what I had at the Taj.) Prime rib was also surprisingly flavorless. As for hot entrees, you better like Indian food (which I do) because there are more Indian than continental selections. However, I was disappointed there was only one Indian meat entree. Expected better all in all.

    We wanted something special after our daughter's graduation ceremony the day before. She'll be leaving Boston to go to the west coast. What better send off that the panoramic view at the top of the Taj Hotel on Newbury?! The food and service were impeccable and the glass of champagne only made it more special.

    As usual, the brunch on the rooftop at Taj is outstanding. The views, the food,everything. They start you off with coffee tea or juice. You can add Champagne(for an extra fee, if you wish)The buffet always has the freshest of everything & is always quickly refreshed, something that you don't always see at other buffets. The broiled Seabass & Morel mushrooms is about the best I've had anywhere. The price is a bit steep at about $70 PP. But you have to pay a bit to get quality like this. A 15% gratuity is automatically added to your bill. This takes the hassle out of tipping. We plan to go back again when the weather allows for the Awning to be rolled back. It was too windy & cool to do that this past weekend.

    The buffet selection was good - not your typical "continental" breakfast bar, but also fancy salads, cheeses, oysters, sushi, etc. Although it was a buffet, the servers are also happy to help and are very nice and attentive. And of course you can't beat the views from the roof top of Taj restaurant right next to the Boston Common.

    We did the Sunday brunch at the top of the hotel. It's the last of the year(weather closes it down when it gets cold)All I can say was a great selection of hot & cold choices.. Crab claws,smoked Salmon,Sushi choices.Eggs Benedict,Cold Cuts,Carving stations,Fresh Omlets,Waffles, Indian selections as well. Just an overall great buffet with great views. Prices are a bit high..$65/PP. If you are a big eater you'll get your money's worth (I know we did!!)Now they'll start serving it downstairs across from where the High Tea is held.

    For the Taj, I was extremely disappointed at the service, food, and overall ambiance. They put us in a corner with no views, whether the whole point of brunching up there was the view, we didnt want to complain so said nothing, we had to wait for about 10 min before someone came up to take our drink order and also the food was not very good. For $60 per person, I thought this was going to be the best brunch in town but I felt that it didn't live up to it.

    Sounds great in theory but for the price, it was lacking. Food is good , not outstanding although the desserts were excellent. Only a handful of tables actually overlooking the Public Garden and on the day I went, windows were not open. Waiters were old school and wonderful. But bottom line, not worth the steep price.

    Great food and selection and nice for if you want to take visitors for a special occasional brunch just given the swankiness of the rest of the hotel and location. The decor of the room where the brunch is held could be a lot better when I was there it was very stark it was like an empty concrete room with tables put in it.

    This experience was OK, but I booked for the following week, and the day before the reservation, they called me to cancel, stating that they had a wedding. It is my guess that they had a wedding scheduled for a while, so I found it very inconvenient to have to find another place on such short notice. Luckily the Boston Harbor Hotel took my reservation and it was much better. I will not go back to the Taj.
